A new Motorola handset, allegedly Moto X (2017), has surfaced in latest pictures and video renders. Earlier this month, it was leaked in live images, revealing what the next-gen Moto X phone is all about and how it looks. The latest rendered shots and video, which are based on actual factory drawings, look similar to the shots leaked previously.
Looking at the available material, Moto X (2017) appears to be based on a 5.2-inch display with a metal unibody design. The display apparently lacks a 2.5D curved screen on top. In terms of the design, it features glossy curvatures and chamfers. The new Moto phone looks pretty similar to Motorola Moto Z, which is currently retailing in India for Rs 40,000.
Interestingly, Moto X (2017) will not be compatible with the company’s Moto Mods accessories due to missing pogo pins on the back. That said, Moto X (2017) may not be Motorola’s flagship phone. It also lacks a dual-camera setup on the back alongside stereo speakers. Considering these compromises, we can safely assume that the device will mostly likely be an affordable mid-ranger.

As far as the specifications are concerned, expectations point out that it runs Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box. It may arrive in two variants — 3GB and 4GB RAM in Silver and Gold colour options. The internal storage of 64GB will remain same for both these variants. If reports are true, the company is gearing up to unveil the device sometime Q1 2017, at either CES or MWC next year.
Motorola recently launched Moto M in India. It comes with all new full metal body design and a fingerprint scanner on the back. Motorola Moto M is priced at Rs 15,999 for 32GB variant and Rs 17,999 for 64GB variant.
